It's a sad, sad day for freedom when a reporter cannot keep confidential sources. What's worese, this leak came from the White House, which is well known. It was originally reported by Bob Novak, not Cooper or Hogan, which is also well known. Where is the warrant for Novak? Or Karl Rove? Why isn't the original source being held to the same standard as these other two reporters?
Mark it in your calendar folks. The day Time follows through with handing over this information is indeed the day Democracy is officially dead. Time is making a grave mistake. The US Supreme Court made an even worse mistake. And if you aren't outraged by this, you aren't paying enough attention.
First a fake election and usurpation of power...Then an illegal war that has killed tens of thousands...Then illegal torture and invisible prisoners...Unending terror alerts during the 2004 election cycle and not one since...And now the threat (and ability) to jail journalists for not revealing their sources. What's next?
